Actually, I just checked the Dynasty Wholesale catalog and you can get the same thing for about $25 (cheaper if in bulk).

okay, i had the impression that sterno was paste-like, whereas the stuff i saw with the puu-puus was purplish and looked more like crystals. goes to show...

i'd guess restaurant supply stores might carry other brands, which might be the crystals you've seen.

i dunno. i just like fire.

I try.

I didn't see the crystals anywhere, and actually I've been wondering what they are myself. Rock salt & grape KoolAid perhaps?

Oceanic Arts has the monkeypod tray and the small cast iron grill.If I remember correctly,the tray was $22.00 and the grill was $9.00.I bought the grill and you should have seen the security guy at the airport.Because it is cast iron,it rang the cherries at the xray machine.I was asked to open my suitcase,and the security guard took it out and ask me what it was for."PuPu",I replied."PuPu?",the guard asked me."Yes,it's for cooking".He then said he had to show it to his supervisor because he didn't think he'd ever seen something for cooking PuPu.Just glad I could take it home.

I haven't forgotten about posting my satay recipe. I'm still looking for it, but my life is in a bit of turmoil right now.

Also, if you don't like the way the sterno makes your food taste, you can always try charcoal. Most of those iron burners and grills will let you cook with charcoal or wood and aren't hard to clean afterwards.

I just had the platter at the Mai Kai on Saturday night. (I live about an hour away from Ft. Lauderdale, lucky me!)

It was presented in a cute way, but no flames. Not really. I mean, there was a cute tiny little candle in a red votive candleholder, placed inside a clay cavern. Pretty! But I would have liked some real flames, baby!

Taste wise, it was very very greasy. But I still loved it, because as far as Im concerned, Mai Kai can do no wrong.

They didnt give us any ribs though. I would have loved some yummy ribs!

OK, some more FoodTV.com recipes, these're from Emeril:

Grilled Chicken Satays with Peanut Sauce

1/4 cup soy sauce
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons fish sauce
2 teaspoons chopped fresh ginger
2 teaspoons chopped fresh garlic
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed and cut into thin strips about 3 by 1/4-inch each
35 to 45 medium (7-inch) bamboo skewers, soaked in water for 15 to 30 minutes
Peanut Sauce, recipe follows
Chopped peanuts, garnish
Cilantro sprigs, garnish


In a medium bowl, combine the soy, oil, fish sauce, ginger, garlic, coriander, and pepper flakes. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Let marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours, turning occasionally.
Preheat the grill to medium-high. (Or preheat the broiler.)

Remove the chicken from the marinade and thread 1 strip of chicken down the middle of each skewer.

In batches, cook the satays on the grill (or on a broiler pan under the broiler) until the chicken is cooked through and the meat is browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side, watching carefully and turning so the meat does not burn.

To serve, arrange the skewers on a platter and lightly drizzle with the peanut sauce and chopped peanuts. Serve additional sauce in a bowl on the side for dipping. Garnish with cilantro sprigs and serve hot or at room temperature.


Peanut Sauce:
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
2 jalapeno peppers, stemmed, seeded and chopped
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 teaspoon minced ginger
1 (12-ounce) jar smooth peanut butter
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1/3 cup fish sauce (nam pla)
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 (14-ounce) can coconut milk
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
Hot sauce, optional

To make the peanut sauce, in a food processor, combine the green onions, cilantro, jalapenos, garlic, and ginger and blend on high speed for 30 seconds, scraping down the sides of the bowl. Add the peanut butter and sesame oil and blend, scraping down the sides, for 30 seconds. Add the fish sauce and lime juice and process to blend. Add the coconut milk and hoisin sauce and process until smooth, scraping down the sides, as needed. You may add hot sauce to taste, if desired.

Beef Satay with a Peanut Dipping Sauce

2 pounds skirt, flank or sirloin tip steak, cut into thin, wide strips against the grain
1 cup teriyaki sauce
1 tablespoon minced ginger, plus 1 teaspoon
1 tablespoon minced garlic, plus 1 teaspoon
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup smooth peanut butter, plus 1 tablespoon
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/2 teaspoon Thai fish sauce
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon toasted chopped peanuts
1 cup julienned carrots
1 cup julienned celery
2 cups shiso greens


Place the beef strips in a medium-sized bowl and pour the teriyaki sauce over them. Add 1 tablespoon of ginger, 1 tablespoon garlic and the salt to the bowl and stir to combine. Marinate, refrigerated, while you make the dipping sauce. In a small bowl, combine the remaining ginger, peanut butter and coconut milk in a small bowl and whisk together. Add the sesame oil, soy sauce, brown sugar, lime juice, fish sauce, cayenne pepper and 1 teaspoon garlic to the bowl and whisk to combine. Place the sauce in a serving bowl and garnish with the cilantro and chopped peanuts. To serve the satays, set-up a Hibachi or indoor grill on the dining table with the carrots, celery and shiso around the grill. Remove the beef strips from the refrigerator and use skewers to thread the meat. Have your guests grill the satays themselves over the grill, about 30 seconds to 1 minute on each side for medium-rare. Serve, with the dipping sauce and veggies on the side.

...And from Roy Yamaguchi:

Korean Style Barbecue Short Ribs

1 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup sugar
1/8 cup sliced green onion
1 tablespoon white sesame seeds
2 tablespoons sesame oil
2 tablespoons ko chu jang (Korean hot pepper sauce)
1 1/2 pounds short ribs (have your butcher cut 1/8-inch thick slices of short ribs, bone attached)


Preheat a grill.
Combine soy sauce, sugar, green onions, sesame seeds, sesame oil, and ko chu jang with ribs and marinate for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Grill over charcoal barbecue grill.

Note: Adjust sweetness or spiciness by adding more or less of either sugar or ko chu jang sauce.
